Will the drought delay fall falling upon the Great Lakes region?

GREEN BAY -- Beautiful oranges, bright reds and vibrant yellows, fall is arriving early in the Great Lakes region.

The colors of fall bring thousands of visitors to the Great Lakes region.

But the question this year will the heat and the lack of rain ruin the show?

The National Weather Service says the drought put added stress on the trees.

"The prediction is the colors may not be as bright and brilliant as they usually are," said Erin Brown of Peninsula State Park. "The leaves may fall off sooner than we typically see."

The beginning of October is usually the best time to see fall colors.

But that could change.

Experts say the weather over the next few weeks will play a big role.
